I.    Background
The Overview of Housing for Low-Income Households in Cambodia is a joint initiative of Habitat for Humanity and the General Department of Housing in the Ministry of Land Management, Urban Planning, and Construction to assess the general condition of housing for low-income families in Cambodia, identify aspects of the housing sector that needs deeper analysis, map out institutional funders that could support the next phases of the low-income housing sector analysis, and provide recommendations on improving housing-related policies and programs in Cambodia, including the modality of delivering these projects. The assessment will cover eight provinces in Cambodia, namely: Siem Reap, Battambang, Banteay Meanchey, Phnom Penh, Preah Sihanouk, Svay Rieng, Kandal, and Kampong Chhnang. This initiative should be conducted in congruence with the United Nation’s definition of adequate housing: habitability, affordability, availability of basic services, security of tenure, location, accessibility, cultural adequacy, and sustainability.

II.    Design of the Study
The primary products of this engagement are (1) a written report in both English and Khmer and (2) a visual deck of the summary of the report that contains the following expected results:

(1)    The overview of low-income housing in Cambodia describes the general condition of the low- income housing sector in the country: contextual conditions, the low-income housing market, and housing policies, programs, and implementation:
a.    Overview of contextual conditions and the low-income housing market including the following information: characterization of formal and informal housing options, security of tenure, and access to basic services; an estimation of housing supply and demand (both formal and informal, quantitative and qualitative) with the description of affordability levels; and the key challenges, vulnerabilities, and disruptive events that hinder low-income families living to access adequate housing. Vulnerabilities include a general presentation of gender-related and disability-related challenges related to access to adequate housing.
b.    Analysis of current programs and policies in place, including regulatory and legal framework to address the housing need in the country. The analysis should provide a general understanding of the inclusivity of policies.
c.    Stakeholder map with key actors – public, private, communities – in each locale with roles in implementation.
(2)    A set of recommendations on which specific areas of the housing sector for low-income families need  a  deeper  assessment,  recommendations  on  which  policies  and  programs  including modalities, should be prioritized to respond to emerging needs, and an inventory of funding options that the Royal Government of Cambodia could explore to support the improvement of housing for low-income families.
